I’ll be down at the beach for Memorial Day weekend, and in keeping with a coastal N.C. theme, I want to recommend again Ray McAllister‘s new book Hatteras Island: Keeper of the Outer Banks, recently released by John F. Blair, Publisher. McAllister has two events scheduled around Memorial Day weekend. He’ll be at the Barnes & Noble in Cary on Thursday evening, May 21, and then over at Manteobooks in Manteo on Saturday, May 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (McAllister has also written books on Topsail Island and Wrightsville Beach, so check out his other titles, depending on which direction you yourself are going in.)
Several other events to point out in this edition of the N.C. literary calendar, including:
- Michael Malone (interviewed here), author of The Four Corners of the Sky,on Sunday, May 24, at McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village.
- Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, authors of Cemetery Dance, on Sunday, May 24, at Raleigh’s Quail Ridge Books.
- And Lee Child with his latest, Gone Tomorrow, on Tuesday, May 26, at Quail Ridge Books.
